Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh responds to Luke Fickell’s transfer allegation, trumpets ‘truth’

Michigan’s top rival will always be Ohio State, but this week Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh has taken exception with another school from a neighboring state.

Earlier this week, Cincinnati head coach Luke Fickell (who spent 16 years as an assistant at Ohio State before taking over the Bearcats in 2017) alleged Harbaugh and Michigan hindered an eligibility waiver for James Hudson, who transferred to Cincinnati from Michigan during the 2018 season.

Hudson said Cincinnati filed a waiver to make him immediately eligible for the 2019 season as he cited mental health as the reason for his transfer and not his position switch from the defensive line to the offensive line.

That waiver was denied by the NCAA, and Fickell told The Athletic “all the power is in the hands of the school a player is leaving” and that Michigan “didn’t back the waiver.”
